Hi ,

The doctors and staff at Kansas City Foot Specialists wish you and yours a happy holiday season! Remember to take good care of your feet this winter, as extreme temperatures and wet weather can make your feet more susceptible to bacterial infections and frostbite. Always wear weather-appropriate footwear, and keep your feet dry after coming in from the cold and snow. Contact us at Kansas City Foot Specialists today if you have any concerns about foot-related conditions or injuries!

Whatever the cause, blisters are painful and irritating, yet for most of us they are not terribly difficult to manage.

Foot blister basics

Foot blisters affect more than five million Americans annually. Most blisters are caused by friction against the skin, resulting in a buildup of fluid between the uppermost layer of the skin and the layers underneath. Severe blisters may cause changes in your gait (how you walk).
